Personal Defense 

It is above question that each individual holds the 
unalienable right to completely own and manage his 
or her body. No one is more qualified than you to 
manage your body responsibly and with dignity. The 
silly assumption that government personnel, who make 
as many mistakes as everyone else, can successfully 
manage their bodies AND yours shows the unmatched 
ignorance of government officials, especially judges 
and prosecutors. 

Constitutional Defense 

The Fourth, Ninth, and Tenth Amendments of the Bill of 
Rights make it clear that government has no authority 
to own or manage our bodies. Individual ownership 
rights extend to decisions for your body, defense of 
your body, health care choices, privacy, gun possession 
on your person, body decoration, alternative 
medicines and supplements, vaccinations, and more. 
Laws claiming government ownership of your body 
demonstrate that the greatest 
threat to human rights is always 
from one's own government. 

Jury Defense 

You, as one individual, cannot do 

much to effect legislation. But as a 

juror, YOU can effectively defend 

each person's absolute ownership 

of his or her body. One person 

can "hang" a jury by refusing to 

convict. If you are called to serve 

on a jury, do so! In turn, if your individual management 

of your body is ever described as a crime, because the 

government claims ownership of your body, wouldn't 

you want a member of your jury to know that was a 

fraud? You want jurors who understand that they can 

hang a jury by simply stating that the prosecutor failed 

to prove the government case. Or you can state no 

reason for your verdict, as is your right 

Defense with Knowledge 

More information on defending this absolute right 
to own and manage your body, which gives you the 
knowledge to defeat the lies of lawyers and judges, 
is available at www.fija.org. You and your family 
and friends will want to learn and share this priceless 
knowledge about jury authority. It is the best peaceful 
means to protect us all. 



The History and Effect of Jury Nullification 




Liberty exists only among reasoning people who 
are tolerant of human diversity. Tyranny thrives on 
intolerance. Conscientious jurors defend liberty 
when they refuse to convict fellow citizens maliciously 
accused of crimes. Reasoning jurors stopped the 
Salem Witch Trials of 1692 and freed tax protesters 
after the Whiskey Rebellion of 1 794. Juries refused to 
convict under the Fugitive Slave Act in 1850, during 
Prohibition 1920-30, Vietnam War objectors, tax 
protesters, medical marijuana users, peaceful gun 
owners, and others. 

The last peaceful defense of our 
liberties is the jury. Writers of our 
Constitution understood that power 
always corrupts. The people must retain, 
understand and use all the processes to 
defend themselves from the greatest 
threat to liberty: one's own government. 
Informed grand jurors and trial jurors can 
protect you from bad government laws. 

There are countless inferior laws, based 
on government's assumed ownership of our bodies, 
that contradict the superior laws of our Constitution 
and common law. With all the bad laws on the books, 
it is only a matter of time before you, your family, or 
friends are accused of some crime. Your last peaceful 
line of defense is informed jurors who refuse to 
convict under bad laws based on government's 
assumed ownership of your body. You hold all rights 
to completely own and be responsible for your body. 




Corrupt prosecutors and judges are common. Anyone 
can easily go through the process to become a lawyer 
or judge. The US is overrun by them. They are common 
people, who hold no more intelligence or reasoning 
ability than any other common person, and often less 
because of their egos and craving for more power. The 
duty and design of the citizen juror is to apply reasoning 
devoid of any craving for power. Lawyers and judges 
literally cannot understand that concept, even 
if they read these words, which is why wise 
people instituted the citizen jury system. 
Jurors hold the authority to render a verdict 
against the demands of power-hungry 
lawyers and judges. 

Today, your understanding of the 

authority for juror nullification is critically 

important due to increasing numbers 

of fear-based laws. These laws are 

supported by both political parties, by 

politically-appointed government judges and 

prosecutors, and by United Nations leadership. 

Jurors can nullify bad laws by refusing to convict 
people being tried under those laws. When jurors refuse 
to convict, legislators and prosecutors know the law is 
NOT supported by the community. Acquittals and hung 
juries are politically embarrassing to legislators, power- 
craving prosecutors, bureaucrats, and most judges. 

It cost many lives to establish a jury system designed 
to protect our individual rights. One informed person on 
each jury can regain these rights. 



Defending Body Ownership Creates an Alliance of Traditional Opponents 

Many favorite rights of conservatives, and other favorite rights of liberals, have been reduced to privileges, 

granted or denied at whim of government officers, by the same flawed process. That process assumes 
government ownership of individual bodies, and implies the willful surrender of that right by the individual. 

As an adult, if you willfully surrendered your right to ingest substances of your choice, or to have a gun on 

your person, which are actions of the body that damage no other person, by not expressly objecting to gun 

and drug laws, you do not own your body. The government owns it. 

That concept in law has voided human rights, replacing them with privileges, because uninformed jurors 
have not protected the absolute right of all conservatives and liberals to own and manage their own bodies.

JURY DEFENSE OF 

YOUR BODY 



Juror nullification occurs when a juror refuses to convict a 
person because of bad or misapplied law. Many bad laws 
are based on government's falsely-assumed ownership 
of your body. Refusing to enforce bad laws by nullifying 
them is the highest duty of a juror. Jurors can defend your 
ownership and management of your body, and thus all 
your other rights. Jurors have the authority to judge the 
law and its application, and to veto bad laws by "not guilty" 
verdicts. Jurors cannot be punished for their verdicts. 

If you want to defend an individual's ownership of his 
or her body, you must first get on the jury. During jury 
selection, lawyers and judges try to remove informed 
people from juries. Power-corrupted lawyers and judges 
depend on seating jurors who will do whatever they are 
told by government, even in violation of good conscience, 
reasoning, common sense and constitutional law. 

When called for jury duty and questioned about your 
understanding of the law or issues, consider stating that 
you do not keep track of political issues, and that you can 
apply the law as instructed by the court. If asked, suggest 
that you do not remember if you belong to any particular 
organizations because you get too many junk mail 
organizational solicitations. Imply an impartial attitude. 

You may be the only informed person on the jury. The 
judge's instructions and oaths to the jurors are designed 
to fool jurors and protect the raw power of judges. 
Despite their official-sounding nature, these instructions 
to jurors cannot be legally binding, or there would be no 
need for the authority of independently-thinking jurors. 

You hold the absolute right to vote your conscience. If the 

accused did not identifiably damage 
an actual person, or for any other 
reason, you can find him or her not 
guilty. Regardless of other jurors, 
you cannot be forced to change 
your verdict. You can state that the 
government prosecutor did not 
prove the government case. Or you 
can state no reason for your verdict, 
as is your right.

Government judges and prosecutors crave raw 
power beyond the legal limit to their authority. 
That power can only exist if the person brought 

before the court is deceived by process into 

surrendering ownership of his or her body, and 

responsibility for individual decisions about that 

body, to government and the courts. Informed 

jurors, who do not seek any power, can defend 

the right of individual ownership of the body for 

everyone, equally. Jurors can refuse to convict if 

the government's case is based on the concept 

of government owning an individual's body, or if 

the government judges or prosecutors pretend to 

have any right to make or enforce any decisions 

about an individual's body. 



WHO OWNS YOUR 



"The right of 

the people to be 

secure in their 

persons ... against 

unreasonable 

searches and 

seizures, shall not 

be violated ..." 

The human right 

that controls all 

other rights is the 

absolute ownership and 

management of one's 

OWN BODY. 

WITHOUT COMPLETE 

OWNERSHIP OF YOUR 

BODY YOU CANNOT HOLD 

RIGHTS. 

Throughout history, kings and 

dictators claimed ownership 

of everyone's body as a way 

to control all people and their 

actions. The U.S. Constitution 

reversed that flawed form 

of government. But now, 

government again claims 

the power of kings, seizing 

ownership of your body. Their 

actions, rather than their lies, 

prove that the government holds 

no compassion or respect for 

you. To government, your body 

is merely a working device it 

owns, to be taxed. 

THE JURY 

IS YOUR DEFENSE.
